Browser(s) Will Not Connect to Internet
I have my T-21 Thinkpad set up as a dual boot with Win98SE & PCLinuxOS 0.93a Junior and a Realtek RTL8180 wireless LAN Mini PCI NIC in the PCMCIA slot. At the local library "hot spot", Win98SE works just fine, problem is PCLinuxOS.
Thru much "trial & error" [I'm no "expert" in wireless or Linux] I have managed to get the yellow & green LEDs on the card to light up.
NOTE: I actually got connected to internet once for about 10 minutes BUT lost the connection when I rebooted !!!
But when I open a browser [both SeaMonkey & Konqueror] I get a message "www.whatever.com not found". I feel like I'm "one click" away from connecting but I can't do it !!!
My "latest clue" is during my many reboots I observed in the POST scrolling the following two lines:-
"Bringing up interface eth0" (there is a LONG pause on this line)
"Determined IP info for eth0 ..................................FAILED"
I have no idea what this means [if anything] but all help/advice will be appreciated !!
